  2. Dalton Deleon at Howard college is missing from this list. He is one of the best all around catchers and has recorded pop times In the low 1.7s. Has a accurate and strong arm, very quick feet and hands and hits with power to all fields from both sides of the plate and is a unbelievable leader behind the plate.

  3. Dylan Dwyer the University of Sioux Falls, has consistently recorded pop times of 1.8 with accuracy, has been described as one of the best defensive catchers with tremndous baseball smarts. 6'1" and 180 is very athletic solid batsman and can move the ball offensively to either side of the field. His record proves he knows how to win.

Catchers By Age

The best way to analyze prospects is using their age in relation to the level they are playing at. Without taking too much of the level into account to start, I'll just be looking at age. I use a players age based on the date that MLB uses to define whether a player will be a draft eligible sophomore, because much of my analysis originates with a players drafted year. If a player is 26.01 on that date, he falls into the 26 year old age category. The age won't always match what is listed on Baseball Reference or FanGraphs but that is how I do it. If I don't have a players birthdate, I use the age listed on Baseball Reference.

Catchers typically progress slower than players at most other positions. The average time for a  college catcher to make it to the majors is 4.15 years. The average for a high school catchers is 5.27 years. This time can be reduced if a player has a higher skill level. Elite players only take 3.04 years out of college and 4.09 out of high school.
